The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on Tuesday mocked President Trump, saying that the U.S. is “being run by an idiot.”
“You [the U.S.] are bankrupt and the signs of your demise are evident to every eye,” ISIS spokesman Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajer said in a statement, as reported by Reuters.
“There is no more evidence than [that] you being run by an idiot who does not know what Syria or Iraq or Islam is,” he added.
ISIS has avoided officially commenting on the new president since Trump’s inauguration in January.
According to Reuters, the recorded statement was released on a messaging network, Telegram, on Tuesday.
